elpful? >> he was very nice to me, but after that we've had some difficulties. it doesn't matter. words are less important to me than deeds. you saw what happened with surveillance and everybody happened with surveillance. >> difficulties how? >> well, you saw what happened with surveillance, i thought that was inappropriate. >> what does that mean? >> you can figure that out yourself. >> you call him sick and bad. >> you can figure it out yourself. he was very nice to me with words and when i was with him. but after that, there has been no relationship. >> but you stand by that claim about -- >> i don't stand by anything. you can take it the way you want.
our side's been proven very strongly and everybody's talking about it. frankly, it should be discussed. i think that is a very big sur vailance of our citizens. i think that's a very big topic and a topic that should be number one, and we should find out what the hell is going on. >> i just wanted to find out, though, you're the president of the united states, you said he was sick and bad. >> can you take any way, you can take it any way you want. >> but i'm asking you. >> you don't have to ask me. >> why not? >> because i have my own opinions. can you have your own opinions. >> but i want to know your opinions. you're the president of the united states. >> that's enough. thank you. thank you very much. >> well, he did bring it up, after all, john, what did you learn about the president in that meeting. >> well, we learned that he still thinks president obama is to blame for surveillance of his campaign, even though the fbi director and others have said
there was no support for president trump's previous claim that the obama administration had wiretapped trump tower. we also have learned to identify when the president has had enough. but after that we traveled to harrisburg, pennsylvania with the president on his plane. he hosted us in his office there and we spoke to him later as we continued throughout the rest of the day. >> one of the things that jumped out at me in the interview was president trump telling you that he would not touch medicare. and that was one of his campaign promises. >> that's right. he said he, during the campaign, he said he was not going to touch medicare, but he has modified or reversed several campaign promises as president, from his position on china to opposition to the export/import bank for example. in this case, members of his own administration, his omb director and health and human services secretary have in the past when they were members of the house supported modifications to medicare. and of course speaker paul ryan does and is trying to convince the president to change his mind. so the president now says as the
president, he is sticking with his campaign pledge, he will not agree to touch medicare for current recipients or future retirees, he said, except to address waste, fraud and abuse. >> john dickerson, anchor of "face the nation," with the interview everybody's talking about today. thank thanks scott. john's interview also revealed some confusion about what's happening with the republican health care bill at the other end of pennsylvania avenue. nancy cordes is there. >> pre-existing conditions are in the bill, and i mandated, i said it has to be. >> reporter: in the interview, president trump insisted his party's bill does not weaken protections for the sick. >> one of the fixes was discussed, pre-existing was optional for the states. >> sure, in one of the fixes. >> so it would be permanent. >> sure. >> that's a development, sir. >> reporter: except it hasn't happened. the latest bill does let states
give insurers options. >> it could affect people with pre-existing conditions. and it will make insurance probably much more expensive for them. >> reporter: in harrisburg, pennsylvania this weekend, president trump pushed his party for a vote. >> and i'll be so angry at congressman kelly and congressman marino and all of our congressman in this room if we don't get that damn thing passed quickly. >> reporter: but that was just after he told dickerson he was in no rush. >> take your time, make it perfect. >> reporter: his chief economic adviser delivered another mixed message on cbs this morning. >> we're going to get health care down into the house. we're convinced we have the votes. >> reporter: that came as a surprise to republican leaders here on capitol hill who have not scheduled the vote, and here's why. scott, cbs news has confirmed that at least 20 house
republicans at this point would vote no, and the gop can only afford to lose 22. >> and they're leaving town on thursday. nancy cordes on capitol hill for us, thank you. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. ♪ ♪ five-second rule protection. new lysol kitchen pro eliminates 99.9% of bacteria without any harsh chemical residue. ♪ lysol. what it takes to protect.

there's been a nationwide effort, recently, to stop bullying in schools. tonight dr. john lapook shows it's beginning to pay off. >> reporter: the morning announcements in el cot, maryland start with a heavy dose of pride. >> we are ready to roar where we are filling our days with pride. >> the respect, integrity, determination and excellence, and these are characteristics that every student should be embracing and modeling in their daily lives. >> reporter: principal novak says it helps battle bullying. it can encourage kids to say hello to each other. >> people are more likely to be inclusive and to be able to talk to people and respect people in everybody in their class, not just who's their friend.
>> reporter: today's study is based on following nearly 250,000 maryland children, grade 4-12 for ten years. researchers found those who were reported victims declined from 29% to 13%. in 2005,22% of kids being bullied were physically hit and 6% were cyber bullied. by 2014, those numbers dropped to 4% and 5 parse. this professor co-authored the report. >> we have a lot of work left to do. we don't want to take our foot off the gas as it relates to focus on school climate and prevention and using evidence-based practices. so by no means is bullying checked off the list. >> reporter: kids are encouraged to do something when they see it. that could be talking to an adult, comforting the victim or making sure they don't encourage the bully. >> dr. jon lapook. thank you. coming up, a clearasil rapid action begins working fast for clearly visible

a 15-year-old honor student and athlete. police initially said he was in a car that was backing up aggressively toward police. but after watching body cam video, the chief says the car was actually moving away from officers when one of them opened fire, hitting edwards. >> i could tell you that i do have questions in relation to my observation on the video. and what is consistent with the policies and core values of the box springs police department. >> reporter: the teenager's family is calling for the officer to be charged. he's now on administrative leave. he is promising a thorough investigation. also in dallas today, first responders came under fire while answering a call about a dispute between neighbors. a paramedic was seriously wounded. he was rescued by a police sergeant, who drove him to the hospital in his squad car. hours later, a police row botd

belongings. one of the tornados here traveled for more than 50 miles of destructive power. >> reporter: i'm tony dokoupil. the nearby current river crested eight feet above a 100-year record. the town is shoulding doutting this, too, is expected to be a record. the banks of the current river in doniphan, missouri were no match for the rising water. it forced major roads and bridges to shut down after the river crested at 33 feet, breaking a 113-year old record. jason schafer is an engineer with the missouri department of transportation. >> we have to make sure that the flow of water hasn't done any structural damage to the bridge before we put traffic impacts back on it. >> reporter: since friday, missouri has gotten nearly a foot of rain, causing this tractor-trailer to wash away, and turning neighborhoods into
lake front properties. the governor has declared a state of emergency and called in the national guard. he says there's been nearly 100 evacuations and three dozen rescues. >> in many parts of missouri, this will be a flood of historic proportions. >> reporter: officials are now preparing for the worst, as there's more rain in the forecast. tony dokoupil, cbs news, pacific, missouri. the white house is backing away from president trump's offer to meet with north korean dictator kim jong un. the president told bloomberg news, quote, i would be honored to do it. the white house press secretary sean spicer later told reporters the conditions are not there right now. margaret brennan reports. >> i would not be happy if he does a nuclear test, i will not be happy. >> reporter: north korean dick tatsder kim jong un's expanding nuclear arsenal is president trump's top foreign policy challenge. >> what do you make of the north korean leader? >> people are saying, is he sane? i have no idea.
i can tell you this. a lot of people don't like when i say it. but he was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father, when his father died. and at a very young age, he was able to assume power. a lot of people, i'm sure, tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else. and he was able to do it, so obviously, he's a pretty smart cookie. >> reporter: kim is accused of widespread human rights abuses, yet president trump told bloomberg news that he'd be honored to meet him. white house officials later stipulated that north korea would first need to abandon its nuclear weapons. it is unusual for an american president to publicly empathize with authoritarian leaders. mr. trump has made a point of praising leaders with an iron grip on power while avoiding co condemnations of their abuses. >> if he says great things about me, i'm going to say great things about him. i've already said he was very
much a leader. >> reporter: and at the white house with president el sisi. >> you have a great friend and ally in the united states and in me. >> reporter: mr. trump has also invited president rodrigo duterte of the philippines, despietd seeing thousands of killings in the name of cracking down and drug trafficking. obama called off a meeting last year after he called the then president a son of a bitch. >> he was a very tough person, but he had a big heart, and he was, he was really angry. that he saw what was happening with regard to the several war. he said there's no reason for this. people don't ask that question. why was there the civil war? why could that one not have been worked out? >> reporter: jackson died 16 years before the civil war, and president trump failed to mention that jackson's support

weirdly and lost her balance and fell backwards. >> reporter: first responders took the woman by stretcher and airlifted her to a local hospital. >> i think it has to do with the shock and ah of social media. >> reporter: he says despite warning signs and security gates, dare devils still find their photo op. >> by doing so, you really compromise your own safety and that of the people around you and potentially the first responders that have to come down here and deal with it. >> reporter: since 2015, the share ever's department has issued dozens of citations and sees more selfie takers on the bridge at weather gets warm, possibly encouraged by other photos they see on social media. as for this latest incident, officials decided not to charge the woman involved. >> we felt the impact of what they saw and what they went through based on her accident was enough to really drive home a message that it's not a good idea and you can potentially die doing it. >> reporter: cbs news, los angeles. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.

put up. because they said his campaign and my campaign tended to mirror each other. so we did a lot of, actually, we did a lot of work. it's a much different look than it was previously. >> what would, that picture of fred trump over there. >> that's my father. i have one coming of my mother. >> what would he think? >> he would be very proud. he was a brooklyn builder. he's a tough guy, but a good heart, a great heart, and he'd be very proud. >> you said the white house was like a cocoon sometimes. tell me about that. >> well, i was very well-known, as you understand, prior to this, but that was a different type of, that was a different world. this is something you are really in your own little world. secret service, they're phenomenal, but they are all over the place. i mean, they are the real deal. they're all over the place. if i wanted to get a, drive my
car to a certain location and do something, you can't do that anymore. haven't been able to do that for a long period of time. but all of that i understand. i guess i assumed that that would happen if you won. and most importantly, i think we're doing a very good job, and ien j i enjoy to. >> you do a lot of your work in here. >> doi, actually. >> why in here and not other places? >> i feel very warm toward the oval office. it's a great symbol. office, when i have certain people that we want to negotiate, for instance, i was negotiating to reduce the price of the big fighter jet contract, the f-35, which was totally out of control. i will save billions and billions and billions of dollars. and calling from here and meeting here and having meetings on that contract, i think gives you great additional power. if you want to know the truth. >> so what's your -- >> other people have come in,
big people from big companies. they've been to the white house 50 times. in one case, i won't say who, somebody you know very well, the head of a major, major company. i said have you been to the white house before? yes, 51 times. i said oh, good, so you've been to the oval office? no, he was never brought to the office. the person came into the oval office and started to cry. came into the oval office and started to cry. now this is a person with a magnificent office, with beautiful glass walls and everything else. you've seen those offices before. but there is something very special about this space. >> if somebody's going to behave like that in front of you in here, how do you know people aren't just telling you what you want to hear? >> you mean with the tears? >> no, they see the power of the office. who tells you no? >> when i have foreign leaders here, no matter what country, no matter how big, we had, as
chancellor merkel, they all come here. they still take notice at the oval office, and they mean it. >> that's what i mean. one of the worries about a presidency is that everybody tells you yes. nobody helps you figure out where your blind spots are. so how do you find that? >> i guess it's one of those things in life you have to be able to figure out. maybe i've been figuring that out anyway, long before i got here. >> mm-hm. >> but some things you have to be able to figure out. but this is a special place. the white house is special. the oval office, very special. >> any other gadgets you've had installed here since you came? >> well, everyone thinks that this is very ominous right here. see this? these are phones. these are very, you know, secure phones. but this is a very ominous looking, because of the red button. >> what does that get you? >> it gets you a coke, or it gets you a pepsi, one or the other. any other cola companies i
should mention, right? but it gets you something. but every time i press that, people, i have fun with people. they'll be sitting down. i changed the way it works. i'll have people sitting here. used to be they never had chairs that anybody can remember in front of the desk. but i've always done this this way and had people here. but usually they would sit on the sofas, but this is the resolute desk, a great desk with a phenomenal history. many great presidents were behind this desk. and some choose other desks. they have about seven desks that you can actually choose, but i like this. it was fdr, ronald reagan. it was kennedy. some great presidents behind this desk. >> george w. bush says the reason the oval office is round is there are no corners you can hide in. >> there is truth to that. there are certainly no corners. you look. there's a certain openness, but there's nobody out there, i've never seen anybody out there as you can imagine.
>> but what he meant is it all comes back to you. >> sure, sure, sure. it does. i think that's true anyway, but that's true. >> when did it hit you, the magnitude of the office, and that idea that you were, regard loss of wh regardless of what happened the buck stopped with you. >> it's the bigness of the office, the bigness of the transactions, the bigness of the deals. you look at the order of planes, it's bigger than any order of planes. you look at aircraft carriers that cost $10 billion and $12 billion to build and submarines that cost $5 billion to build. it's the magnitude. but most importantly, you know, the decisions, like when i made the decision to go with syria, the 59 tomahawk missiles, unbelievable technology. we have unbelievable talent. but those are tough decisions. those aren't like decisions that i'm going to buy a building.
>> why? >> tough decisions. >> you're killing people. >> you're killing people, and you can kill other people, they go off in a town or a city and you have another tragedy on your hands. so these decisions are unbelievable in terms of the importance. it's killing. i hate it. but things have to be done. >> how do you learn that skill? who do you call to say what's it like? >> there's nobody you can call. >> did president obama give you any advice that was helpful? >> well, he was very nice to me, but after that, we've had some difficulties. so it doesn't matter. you know, words are less important to me than deeds. and you saw what happened with surveillance, and everybody saw what happened with surveillance. >> difficulties how? >> well, you saw what happened with surveillance. and i think that was inappropriate. >> what does that mean? >> you can figure that out yourself. >> well, the reason i asked you call him sick and bad. >> look, you can figure it out yourself. he was very nice to me with words, but, and when i was with him, but after that, there has
been no relationship. >> you stand by that claim about -- >> i don't stand by anything. you can take it the way you want. i think our side's been proven very strongly, and everybody's talking about it. and frankly, it should be discussed. i think that is a very surveillance of our citizens, i think it's a very big topic, and it's a topic that should be number one, and we should find out what the hahell is going on. >> i just want to find out, you're the president of the united states. you said i was sick ahe was sic. >> you can take it anyway you want. >> you don't have to ask me. i have my own opinions, you can have your own opinions. >> but i want to know your opinions. you're the president of the united states. >> it's enough. thank you. thank you very much. >> and with that is correct john dickerson's day with the president came t
